Officials from the Center for Science in the Public Interest are calling Domino's BreadBowl Pastas "food porn," according to a story on the Web site of AM 123 in Grand Rapids, Mich.
 
According to the story:
Jayne Hurley, senior nutritionist at the Center for Science in the Public Interest in Washington, said most people wouldn't consider eating an entire medium hand-tossed cheese pizza from Domino's in one sitting, but Domino's BreadBowl Pastas contains white flour penne, sauce, cheese and other toppings entombed in Frisbee-sized white-bread crusts.
 
"White-flour pasta with cream-cheese sauce can be a nutritional nightmare on its own," Hurley said in a statement. "The last thing it needs is an 800-calorie white-bread pizza-crust bowl."
 
The center's Nutrition Action Healthletter spotlights food porn in each issue alongside what it calls a right stuff recommendation.
 
"Topping a pizza crust with an order of macaroni and cheese is probably the most discouraging mac-and-cheese innovation since The Cheesecake Factory decided to ball it up and toss it in the deep-fryer," Hurley said. "What's next, wrapping it in a giant blueberry pancake?"
